Meghan Markle's Friends Serena Williams & Priyanka Chopra Change Into Glamorous Reception Gowns
And the evening party gave guests, including Serena Williams, Priyanka Chopra and best friend Jessica Mulroney, a chance to take some fashion risks and express their personalities with new looks, which saw a plethora of glittery gowns and detailed designs for the intimate event hosted by the father of the groom, Prince Charles.
Tennis star Williams, 36, quick-changed into a sleeveless multi-colored floral gown from Valentino’s Fall 2018 collection and a Bulgari necklace as she ditched the fascinator and Versace dress that she wore for the ceremony. The mother of one was once again accompanied by husband and Reddit co-founder Alexis Ohanian, who chose a Tom Ford tuxedo for the private affair.
Meanwhile, actress Chopra, 35, opted for an embellished off-the-shoulder gown from Christian Dior’s Pre-Fall 2018 collection. The former star of Quantico, who was styled by Mimi Cuttrell, accessorized her look with Lorraine Schwartz jewels and a Dior purse.

However, the night belonged to the blushing bride who debuted her second look after tying the knot in a gorgeous custom Givenchy design by the label’s British Artistic Director, Clare Waight Keller, that was fit for an elegant princess.
Fit for a party, Meghan’s custom silk Stella McCartney evening dress in “lily white” featured a high halter neck and sexy open back, and was accessorized with custom satin Aquazurra shoes featuring nude mesh detailing and baby blue-painted soles.
In addition, Meghan wore a special keepsake: Harry’s late mother Princess Diana’s aquamarine ring.
She also changed up her hairstyle — and hair stylist — turning to George Northwood to create her effortless updo, after go-to Hollywood stylist Serge Normant created her bridal hair moment for the ceremony.
